We spent 2 days in this charming place which we believe is likely the best in the area in terms of value and charm. Quinta is situated in a lush little garden and the rooms have a shared balcony.
Our room was very inviting and clean and had some pretty décor. The King-sized bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had lovely tiling and a great hot-water shower. We also had a mini fridge and nice little touches of coffee, cookies and candy placed in the room.
The owner has an Italian restaurant in front and the dishes that we tried for dinner that day were simply scrumptious!! He was very kind to give us a loaf of freshly baked Italian bread the next day which we thought was one of the best we have tasted!
The Brasilito beach is not very pretty; however, a short walk/ drive in preferably a 4W leads you from this beach to the other stupendous Playa Conchal, which Lonely Planet deems the prettiest beach in all of Costa Rica. The ‘sand’ is comprised of finely crushed seashells. The white sand and beautiful blue water combined with a lot of shady trees do indeed make this beach an enchanting one! We found a trail behind the beach and had a long walk to another pretty beach, passing though small white sand dunes. The sunset on Playa Conchal was fantastic!
One thing to note is that the lodge is situated on the main road and you will hear some traffic during the day. My boy-friend is sensitive to this; however, I am not, so if you are finicky like him, you might think twice about this location. Nonetheless, let me remind you that if you want to see Playa Conchal, Quinta Esencia is really the best choice, all things considering (other than the Westin if you are willing to be extravagant!).
